Hi Norman

Not easy to be certain from the image, but it could well be Scottish - from Strathearn Glass; they made door handle weights, and also made weights with scattered millefiori on muslin. A clear image of some of the canes would probably allow certainty in attribution (to rule out Murano).

Regards
Alan
